Sir Bradley Wiggins rode away from the velodrome after Paris-Roubaix and his Team Sky career with his head held high. He did not win the French Classic, but said his attack was the stuff of his boyhood dreams when growing up in London.

Rivals marked Wiggins move on the Templeuve sector with 33km left to race, but he marked the day. He also attacked again with around 4km remaining and held on to finish 18th in Roubaix's famous velodrome.
